The UK Race and Europe Network (UKREN) is a UK-wide network of more than 200 organisations – predominately non-governmental and community-based in nature – involved in race relations and combating racism at a local, national or European level.
It was established in 1996 to raise awareness of the importance of European Union legislation and policy for UK-based organisations working on race equality and discrimination issues and has since then taken a leading role in ensuring that local and national UK organisations are kept informed of the latest developments in European race relations.
UKREN acts as the official UK coordinator of the European Network Against Racism (ENAR), based in Brussels.
